    Default 2000 Access cab - will 2003 access cab cap fit?

    Hello, I have a 2000 access cab SR5, and need a fiberglass cap for the bed. I cannot afford a brand new cap, so I have been searching the second hand market. I have found a few caps listed as fitting 2003-2006, question I have is, will a cap from an `03 fit on a `00? I called a distributer for ARE and Leer, and when I asked this question, I was told that he didnt see any reason they would not be interchangable. I would think the dimmensions would be the same, wondering if the profile of the cab to cap gap would be different. Anyone out there been down this road? I could not find any info on the subject anywhere, and have found lots of good info on this forum on other topics, any help is really appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    i dont see why it wouldnt but for good measure, measure the dimensions of the bed and then get the dimensions of the cap.

    Yes, I know for a fact that it will fit as long as it is an AC specific cap. I have an '01 AC and bought a used ARE from a guy who had it on his '06. It fits perfect. The only difference between a '99-'02 and an '03-'06 AC Tundra, body wise, is the front bumper and grill. The bed box is exactly the same.

    dont forget that the stepside bed is different, it is also an access cab truck configuration.

    I bought a Leer cap from a 2000 AC for my 2002 AC and they are exactly the same. Hope that helps. If you weren't so far away I'd sell you mine.
